Why Hemp Protein?
Complete Source of Protein:
We use organic hemp protein powder from cold pressed seeds because hemp is one of few complete plant-based proteins that contains all 9 essential amino acids. While hemp protein may have slightly less protein per serving than its other plant-based counterparts like pea or soy protein, it is far less processed, making it the purest choice.
Easy to Digest:
Research has shown that hemp protein is 91-98% digestible, allowing your body to absorb almost all the amino acids present in each scoop.
Good Source of Fibre:
One of the many benefits of a diet high in fibre, is that fibre feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut, working like a prebiotic. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels and decrease the rise in blood sugar after high-carb meal.
We choose hemp protein because it contains more fibre than both soy or pea protein.
Source of Unsaturated Fat
While the process of making hemp powder actually presses the seeds to remove their oils, hemp powder still contains about 10% of the original fat content which is more fat than most other protein powders. Hemp also contains the ideal ratio of 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential nutrients that the body cannot make itself.
Source of Minerals and Antioxidants
High in phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc and copper, hemp seeds are the perfect addition to your daily diet. They also contain compounds called lignans which have strong antioxidant properties, helpful for protecting our bodies oxidative damage.
